Look What’s Cookin’ At the Museum

By Jackie Garbarino
Bookstore and Volunteer Manager

We tackled the kitchen this weekend. We still have more to do but the kitchen is looking good. The Home and Garden network has nothing on us.

The “before” is pretty uninspiring. This is after Hurricane Ike paid us a visit and before renovations.

We put in glass brick windows but kept the louvered shutters on the outside to maintain the building’s historical image.  Using glass bricks has improved security, and decreased energy costs by keeping out the hot air and letting in the natural light.

The “after” is worth it. And the floor looks great.

We will keep you posted on this and many more projects to renew the museum. By November it should be ready for visitors with the help of AND Construction a lot of elbow grease.
